Hi, This is a IchiRan pairing and my very first fanfic. This is also dedicated to Grinja,the fanfiction author whose story"Staying The Night" was the very I read on fanfiction that had a IchiRan pairing.I hope you like this story,my fellow IchiRan friends.

Summary: Ichigo and Rangiku's infant son can't sleep, so they allow him to hear a peaceful song which serves as a lullaby.

Disclaimer: I don't own Bleach or any of their do I own Poets Of The Fall's song "Sleep". However, I do have on my MP3


Story Starts Now.

In The Kurosaki household at four in the morning, a wailing sound echoed through the hallway and it awoke Ichigo and Rangiku. Rangiku yawned and stretched her arms before getting of bed and slipping on her red night robe and exiting out the doorway to the room next to them, where after a few minutes, the wailing ceased. Ichigo heard his wife cooing "There, there, sweetie, Momma's here". Ichigo rubbed his eyes before getting up and opening a CD case, where he selected the Poets of the Fall disc entitled "Signs of Life" and heading to the next room. There, he saw Rangiku in a rocking chair holding a small bundle with a baby inside, to which she smiled brightly at. The baby had orange hair with streaks of strawberry blond and had icy blue eyes. This was her and Ichigo's two-year old son, Ichiku.

"What do you think is up with him?" Ichigo said shrugged her shoulders and said "I don't know. Poor sweetheart hasn't been able to sleep for a while now." She then noticed the CD in his hand. "

What's that, honey?" Rangiku asked as Ichigo put the CD in a CD player and pressed play after skimming through a few tracks.

"A lullaby for our son. Just listen." he said as he knelt down next to the rocking chair and looked into his adorable son's face, making him do a bubbly laugh. Lyrics began playing and Ichiku's face broke into a smile as Rangiku began rocking the chair and her son, who also seemed to be enjoying the music.

Hear your heart beat

Beat a frantic pace

And it's not even seven A.M

You're feeling the rush of anguish settling

You cannot help showing them in

Hurry up then

Or you'll fall behind us

And they will take control of you

And you need to heal

The hurt behind your eyes

Fickle words crowding your mind

So, sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in

Like waves of sweet fire, you're safe within

Let your floods come rushing in

And carry you over to a new morning

Try as you must

You try to give it up

Seems to be holding fast

It's hand in your hand

A shadow over you

A beggar for soul in your face

Still it don't matter if you won't listen

If you won't let it follow you

You just need to heal

Make good on all your lies

Move on and don't look behind

So, sleep, sugar, let your dreams flood in

Like waves of sweet fire, you're safe within

Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in

And carry you over to a new morning

Day after day

Fickle visions messing with your head

Fickle, vicious

Sleeping in your bed

Messing with your head

Fickle visions

Fickle, vicious

Sleep, sugar,let your dreams flood in

Like waves of sweet fire, you're safe within

Sleep, sweetie, let your floods come rushing in

And carry you over to a new morning. Whoooo. Yeah.

Ichiku yawned and closed his eyes; though not before his mother kissed his cheek and laid him back in his crib.

"Like the song says, sleep sweetie, let your dreams flood in" said Rangiku before she left and Ichigo deactivated the CD player and softly ruffled his son's hair.

"Good night, my little guy" said the man as he left the room and lay back in bed with Rangiku.

"I think we've found some music our son likes. What about you, Ichigo? Ichigo?" she looked to see Ichigo was already asleep and just smiled as she laid her head on his chest.

"Like father, like son" Rangiku thought as she also fell asleep.
